Here's What's Going On In Redondo
I hope this email finds you well. We are slowly opening up and we’ve had an “interesting” couple of weeks. The State and County will be opening up a bit more on June 12th – see below for details.
Quick Note: Please remember that the “Safer At Home” order is still in place. It’s our best tool for combating the spread of this virus. Continue to socially distance, wear a mask when visiting a store and carry one with you wherever you go. These requests have not changed, keep up your efforts.
Please be patient and stay home as much as possible. It’s working!
OK, so we’ve been dealing with COVID-19 and now we have protesting in our streets – these are extreme times which lends the question:
This Saturday, June 13th, 2020 @ 10am I will be hosting special guest, Redondo Beach Chief Kauffman via Zoom. Let’s ask him!

So, in today’s Around Redondo newsletter, I’m sharing with you:

Remember: There is no “light switch” to flip, and if we don’t open up properly, we’ll have to do this again. I don’t want to do this again, and I know you don’t either.
Stay safe, and we’ll see you Saturday on Zoom!

LA County Public Health - New Release - 06/10/2020
From Gyms and Day Camps to Spectator-Free Professional Sports and Museums, L.A. County Moves to Reopen Key SectorsLos Angeles County is moving forward on the Roadmap to Recovery and reopening key economic and community sectors, including day camps, fitness centers, spectator-free professional sports, museums, campgrounds and entertainment production.
In the most comprehensive reopening since strict public health guidelines were put in place in March, today the Los Angeles Department of Public Health announced that the Health Officer Order will be modified tomorrow to include infection control and distancing requirements for re-opening the following sectors on June 12:
With these re-openings, Los Angeles County will be in Phase 3 of the State’s Resilience Roadmap.
However, this major step forward does not mean the threat of COVID-19 is gone. Residents must continue to practice physical distancing, wear cloth face coverings and follow public health directives.
If at any time, the County’s rate of infection and other key metrics demonstrate a rapid acceleration of new cases that threatens to overwhelm the healthcare system, the Department of Public Health and the Board of Supervisors may need to limit future re-openings or close reopened sectors.
Going to the gym, visiting a museum or going to camp will be very different than it was before the pandemic. Each sector reopening will have strict infection control directives in place.
Just as is required for all out-of-home activities, visitors and staff will have to practice physical distancing and wear cloth face coverings. There will be limited capacity and enhanced cleaning and disinfecting procedures. People feeling sick should stay home
These additional re-openings follow other significant elements of the economy and community that have begun reopening and operating with limits and safeguards, including hair salons, barber shops, religious services, retail, restaurants, beaches and trails.
Still closed are nail salons, tattoo shops, bars and wineries, movie theaters, live performance theaters, entertainment centers, concert halls and venues, stadiums, arenas, gaming facilities, theme parks and festivals. Click here for a detailed list of what is open and closed in L.A. County.
Los Angeles County is still under a Safer At Work And In The Community order and public and private gatherings of people outside of a single household unit are not permitted except for public protests and faith-based services.
Everyone must continue to follow physical distancing and infection control protocols and wear a cloth face covering when in contact with others not from your household.
The plans for reopening are part of a phased progression that provides residents, employees and customers with safety protections to slow the spread of COVID-19.
